The transformation is complete
This is who I’m in a relationship with
The Fifth Elephant Terry Pratchett (via tremendoussocks)
sorry i couldn’t help it
This is literally perfect.
people saying “awh, mary just made a mistake” as if she accidentally left the mayonnaise out overnight or something and didnt a) take money to murder people for a living b) lie to everyone about everything c) knock her best friend out cold with a blow to the head and d) shoot her husband’s best friend in the abdomen because she didnt want her husband to know she was a murderer i give up
e) threaten her husband’s best friend again while he was in the hospital
f) threaten him YET AGAIN when he asked how good a shot she really was
g)never apologize to anyone for any of it (except right before actually pulling the trigger)
It’s possible that that’s what they intended, but if it is, then Martin really missed the mark (and I’ve never really known Martin to miss the mark). If I put myself in John’s position, here are the facts:
Now, if this is my best friend who confuses the hell out of me but whatever, we’re ‘mates’, I am definitely shocked at the girlfriend turn of events. If I’m shocked, I will stare, mouth agape. I will be unable to tear my eyes away from this bizarre sight that I never thought I’d see. Sherlock…Holmes…kissing…a woman? WHAT? Someone call science immediately.
But that’s not what I do. Instead, I look away. I make shocked (and uncomfortable) noises. And after the girl leaves, I can’t help but dwell on the idea that I’m going to have to see this again. I’m going to have to watch this sickening display with MY WIFE SITTING RIGHT NEXT TO ME. She is TOTALLY gonna be curious about why it bothers me so much, because she, of course, will be DELIGHTED. This is TERRIBLE.
The way Martin played it, either John Watson is a terrible best friend who only wants Sherlock to be miserable and alone out of spite, or John Watson wants Sherlock to be alone because Sherlock is HIS. Sure, he passed, but still—DIBS.
At least that’s how I see it. Now I think there’s room for interpretation in where John’s interest falls on the scale of romance and sexual attraction (does it favor only romance, or does it include both?). But I don’t think there’s any question that Martin meant to convey jealousy in that scene—along with disbelief, sure, but remember what Ian McKellen said of our boy: he’s adept at showing more than one emotion at a time and conveying both clearly.
Ugh…sorry for being so long-winded!
Mutual follows get me so hard
tbh when Sherlock says “Vatican Cameos” at the wedding, John doesn’t look upset. He sits up straighter, looks more in his element, almost calmer. He looks excited for the first time in the reception.
yES I was focusing in songs with lyrics but you’re right good catch!
